It doesn't really matter how much you shuffle a crap hand of cards it remains a crap hand. Discard the bad cards and draw some new ones. Or throw them all out and get a new hand from what's left in the pack

Even if the new ones aren't very good they can't be worse than what you've got

And you never know. If it's your day you might draw a flush or full house

I kinda agree Bro but then we really need someone "to know when to hold em and know when to fold em"

Basically the season on the line.

2-3 is how we start every year pretty much.

1-4 and you might as well start releasing guys from contracts early.

The head says the top 8 was gone as soon as the displayed all the same flaws as previous years. But it’ll become a cold certainty if they go down in this one.

1. Roger Tuivasa-Shek
2. Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad
3. David Fusitua
4. Solomone Kata
5. Ken Maumalo
6. Kieran Foran/Ata Hingano
7. Shaun Johnson
8. Jacob lillyman
9. Isaac luke
10. Ben Matulino
11. Bodene Thompson
12. Ryan Hoffman
13. Simon Mannering

14. Ata Hingano/Nathaniel Roache
15. James Gavet
16. Ligi Sao
17. Bunty Afoa

I'm interested to see what Kearney decides to do with Manu this week, Kens no great winger but he's probably done enough this season to hold his place for now. I'd be reluctant to change the preseason center pairing of Kata/Fusitua, we've seen the effect on combinations that's had already this season.

Gubb, Lolohea and Lisone to return to the Cup side which is probably hard on Lisone, he's had some good moments bringing some aggression from the bench but he lacks size and game sense, he to often undoes his good work with poor judgement.

CNK deserves to go ahead of Lolohea on the fact he's prepared to put his body on the line alone. He's equally talented imo, last season he was the Warriors ISP player of the year and named fullback of the year in the ISP team of the year. In 2014 he received Melbourne’s NYC back of the year award and the Greg Brentnall Young Achievers’ Award, he's come up through the Aussie system and now deserves a shot at establishing himself in first grade.

I need to see more of Ligi Sao, I'm not entirely sold on him yet but he's a bigger body and his form in the Cup side warrants his selection.

Gubb played 26 mins against the Dragons.

I just can't have him in the top team.

If he is only going to play small minutes then it needs to go to someone like Tof or Pat Sipley who's mandate should be to rip in, you will only play 20 minutes.

Which makes me wonder, when a coach tells you "you're next on", surely he also tells you "you got 20 minutes/you have to play the rest of the game with so-and-so coming off early, we can't interchange you" so the player knows they've only got 20 minutes so rips in or thinks "shit, gotta last 65 minutes, better not blow out..."

Or do our players - or in fact any players - not have that process?

Muts is a month away according to sources closer to home.

I wouldn't do drastic changes, would love to see CNK get a chance on the wing, with Lolohea making way. Hingano in at 6.

We don't have many better options in the forwards unfortunately, would tinker with the rotation however, Hoffman isn't a 80 minute player, Bunty for a stint at prop then move to his edge after 60 minutes. Not a big Gubb fan, would take Vete over him.
 
my team is the terminator, superman, spiderman cos he can catch anything, the hulk and anyone else who has balls to stand up do the hard yards and win some bloody games or at least put on some sort show for the bloody fans.
